It's impossible to have a bad time in Badalona

Set 8 miles north of Barcelona and on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Badalona vacation rentals are the perfect destinations for travelers seeking sun, sights, and a slightly slower pace of life. The city was founded by the Romans in the 3rd century BCE, and the city has preserved remnants of that history. Residents have also preserved a rich culture of outdoor sports, Spanish cuisine, and summer festivals honoring the saints. In short, a trip to Badalona is a passport to summer fun on the beach and much, much more.

Come for the beach, stay for the history and the local charm

Summertime means seaside fun for most visitors booking Badalona vacation rentals. Watersports like surfing and kayaking are the most popular pastimes among visitors, with historic tours of the city's ruins coming in a close second. If you're not in a beach mood, of if you're visiting in winter, you can immerse yourself in city life and feel like a year-round resident. Take a walk through the city's popular parks, check out one of the many (very many) pick-up basketball games local kids play every weekend, or enjoy 1 of the festivals in honor of Badalona's patron saint.

Walk a winding medieval road to an ancient Roman bath

Badalona was built around the old Roman town of Baetulo, and the excavated site of that ancient city is now a museum, offering a unique look at a long-gone way of life. Visitors can get a glimpse of former streets, bathhouses, and public squares. On the edge of the Baetulo remains is Dalt Vila, another preserved neighborhood, this 1 from medieval times. If you prefer a healthy mix of history and art, head to the Museum of Badalona, opened in 1955. Its collections include artifacts from throughout Badalona's history, as well as the work of local artists, past and present.

A humid marine climate takes the edge off in Badalona

Badalona's perch on the Mediterranean coast means it has a mild marine climate that's hospitable throughout spring, summer, and fall. Summer is particularly steamy, and high temperatures hit the 80s. Rainfall increases in spring and summer, but the city is less crowded, so you might find Badalona vacation rentals at lower prices. In winter, temperatures dip into the 50s and even lower at night. You'll need to bundle up, but you won't freeze solid. The lowest lows are in the 40s, so just remember to bundle up and save your sunbathing for another season.

Sandy beaches and shady parks make Badalona feel good

Set on the banks of the Besos River and with the Serra de la Marina mountain range as a majestic backdrop, you'll feel the call of nature from every corner of the city. Of course, the greatest natural wonder at your fingertips is the sea, and you'll have your pick of sandy beaches. Can Solei and Ca L'Arnus Park is an excellent option for nature lovers who want a break from the shore. This 30-acre retreat from city life is complete with groves of pine, eucalyptus, and palm trees, plus a lake and historic home open to visitors.
